THROUGH A TRANSCENDENT APPROACH TO LEADING TOWARD A HEALTHIER WORKPLACE

People in the workplace have an often ingrained but rarely discussed feeling that they are wasting their lives. COVID-19 only made the situation worse. Many employees experience anxiety and an increased sense of insecurity. It is now up to the organisations to take care of the employees’ health, as only healthy people can create healthy organisations and a healthy world. Whether your organisation can accomplish this depends on whether it has transcendent leaders who can transfer their noble intentions into everyday leadership experience. We will learn how to adopt an integrated approach to people-centred leadership development creating a transcendent culture that improves business results and can solve even the most challenging organisational problems.
